Is Nicole

Back in Rehab

for Diet and Drugs?

5/23/2007 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0523_nicole_ritchie-1Reports are swirling that tabloid princess Nicole Richie is back -- yet again -- in rehab and more "helpless" than ever, but TMZ is told that it just ain't so. In fact, as we write, Nicole's sitting at home in Glendale, and doing just fine.

The National Enquirer and Star magazine are jointly reporting that Nicole re-entered rehab at Beau Monde on May 11 to fight anorexia and a painkiller addiction, on an outpatient basis, and that she did so "in tears," lamenting the fact that she's "lost control of her life." What's more, report the tabs' sources, she went back in just a few days ago, on the 19th.

But Richie's rep tells TMZ a totally different story, namely that she isn't -- and wasn't -- in rehab, and that she's "in Glendale at her house" (and, we presume, eating). We're told that she did go back to see her therapist, and that her recovery is "an ongoing process," but that she's "completely sober."

I think it is sad when people have zero talent and become famous only because they r pill poppn alcoholic disfunctional 'hos. If that's all it takes to be famous, let me know, cause with my family the stage would be set for me to be a milionaire!!!!

ORPHANS IN UNITED STATES NEEDS JUST AS MUCH HELP , STARTS AT "HOME ( USA )    



THE FACT IS .......CELEBS WILL ALWAYS HAVE MENTAL AND PHYSICAL

ABUSE IN THERE LIVES , AS LONG AS THEY'VE "MILLIONS OF DOLLARS" .

IT'S EASY FOR THEM TO BUY IT ......ALWAYS ON DRUGS AND BEING DRUNK ,

AND ESPECIALLY LIVING IN BELAIR , BEVERLY HILLS , AND SURROUNDING

AREAS . THEY "ALL" HAVE TO LIVE A "HIGH " LIFE STYLE , CELEBS ARE

NOT MENTALLY OR PHYSICALLY STABLE , NOT UNLESS THEY REALLY

GET OUT OF THIS PROFESSION. THIS BEEN GOING ON FOR GENERATIONS

NOR WILL IT EVER STOP .

HOLLYWOOD ISN'T A PLACE FOR BABIES , CHILDREN , TEENAGERS , YOUNG

ADULT , THE PARENTS ARE CONTRIBUTING TO THE PROBLEM , GIVING THE

KIDS MONEY , OR SPOILING THEM , ETC ..... LOOK AT PARIS HILTON , AND MANY

OTHER SO CALLED 20ISH , THEY ALL HAVE PROBLEMS .

LIVING IN HOLLYWOOD ITS ABOUT "BEING SOMEONE , WHO YOU REALLY AREN'T.

ALL FAKE .............. "KEEPING UP WITH THE JONESES " .

ONCE A MAN TOLD ME WHO'S FROM HOLLYWOOD SAID , ALL THE WOMEN

AND SOME MEN , ARE ALL MADE OUT OF "PLASTIC" , SURGERIES ,ETC

TO TRY AND LOOK THE BEST . CELEBS CAN "NEVER" BE THERESELVES ,

THEY SAY , THEY'RE HAPPY , WHEN ACTUALLY THEY'RE "LYING " THERESELVES

AND EVERYONE AROUND THEM . MOST OF THE 20 SOMETHING AGE GROUP

ALL HAVE PROBLEMS , JUST LOOK AND SEE .

TO GET INTO THIS BUSINESS ( BECOMING A CELEB ) , ITS NOT WHAT YOU

KNOW , WHAT WHO'S ASS YOU WILL KISS . SOMETIMES EACH CELEBS

HAS TO SPEAK NICE TO GET EACH OR ELSE , THEY COULD "LOSE" THERE

NEXT JOB OFFER. MANY CELEBS ARE "VERY PHONEY" FROM JUST THE

WAY THEY SPEAK , THAT NOT ONLY CELEBS BUT ROCK STARS .

I WOULD RATHER BE "RICH" THAN FAMOUS ANY DAY .............THIS WAY

I CAN HAVE A "NORMAL " LIFE .

KEEP IN MIND ...........MONEY DOESN'T MAKE YOU HAPPY , IT STARTS

WITH YOUR INNERSELF .............

EXAMPLE .....PARIS HILTON , SHE CAN GO ON EXPENSIVE VACATIONS

DRIVE EXPENSIVE CARS , BUY ALL THE CLOTHES OR GET THEM FREE

LIKE SHE DOES , BUT IF SHE'S NOT HAPPY , "INNERSELF" , THEN SHE

HAS NOTHINGGGGGGGGGGG .............

BY THE WAY MANY CELEBS "DOESN'T " USE COMMON SENSE .

I think its sad to see Nicole as skin and bones. When she was thicker she looked much better. But we all know its from drugs I mean come on we've all seen the pics of her dinner plate full of coke as she berried her nose into it. She does all these drugs which in turn gives her no appetite. So she doesnt eat and she just keeps losing weight. I use to like Nicole but now I cant stand her right along with her herpies infested jail bound side-kick!!!
